TrueCommerce has acquired fellow cloud-based supply chain collaboration and visibility platform ecUtopia for an undisclosed sum. With the acquisition, TrueCommerce gains a strategic technology service that strengthens its commerce network in several market segments, specifically home furnishings and apparel.
The TrueCommerce solutions are designed to help retailers connect their business across the supply chain under one global network, integrating processes including Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), inventory management and fulfillment, as well as e-Commerce hubs such as digital storefronts and marketplaces.
There are no immediate plans to rename ecUtopia, but the company will be rebranded under the TrueCommerce banner.
TrueCommerce, based in Pittsburgh, plans to integrate the ecUtopia operations into its own “where it makes sense,” according to a company Q&A posted on its web site. The ecUtopia San Diego office will operate as another Center of Excellence for TrueCommerce customers.
The companies will determine when and how they can extend TrueCommerce’s catalog of products and technologies to ecUtopia customers and offer additional services designed to help improve supply chain operations. In addition, the companies will immediately evaluate incorporating ecUtopia’s platform and technology into the TrueCommerce Foundry platform.
